    I currently have a Sager Clevo P870DM2_DM3 with the following specs

    CPU: i7-6700K @ 4 GHz (8 CPUs)
    GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080
    RAM: 32 GB
    Storage: 2 x 500 GB SSDs
    Screen: 120 Hz refresh rate, 2560x1440

    I tried to look on eBay but I don't see one being sold so I really can't get an estimate of how much this laptop would cost right now in the market. The laptop is in mint condition without any problems, everything is fully funcitoning.

    I am looking to sell it to make a desktop, finally giving up on laptops. I would like to transition to a really nice desktop setup for gaming and video editing.

    Does anyone know how much this would sell for? A rough estimate

    I would say $1300 is a fair price for it.

    That CPU is now 4 generations old and there are brand new RTX 2060 laptops selling for that price or even less in some cases. I’d say $900 is more where the market would be, with the OP needing to be willing to take less for a quick sale.

    Perhaps to a novice buyer that’s what it would seem to be worth. But to someone experienced enough to know what it is, it’s still a very modular/upgradeable DTR system, with a GPU that competes against the mobile 2070, a fairly rare high refresh rate QHD screen, sizable amounts of RAM and SSD, great expandability (3x M.2, 4x SO-DIMM, 2x 2.5”), and great cooling courtesy of the dual vapor chamber. I think $1300 is more than reasonable for an example in mint condition.

    Those new machines also come with a warranty, plus your target sellers market is small to see that value, you can check the members market on here (which has a price check section too IIRC which would be more appropriate for this).

    Part it out, it will take more time, but you will get more money. Let me know the price when you have it.

    When you say part it out, did you mean to take out the parts and sell it piece by piece?

    Aghh, I know this is going to sound quite absurd from a guy who owns this laptop but I'm actually afraid to strip it apart and break something.

    I'm trying to sell it all as one unless you think I'll be making a lot more...

    I think the $900 estimate is more accurate.. and selling as parts can mean a lot of work. Disassembly, time spent haggling about prices, shipping costs and legwork, harder to test a DOA spare part, etc.

    Maybe you could live with it for a while and try to work a trade for a full used desktop locally? I find sometimes folks selling their desktop (usually to switch to a laptop...) are happier to sell it to together for the same reasons. That P870DM2 should be able to take a 6 or 8 core processor for not much work either so it could be a selling point.
